    When I booked DME online for November 2018, I rec’d a reservation number and Barcode. Have booked online again for March 2019 and have only rec’d an email confirmation. Should I receive a reservation number and Barcode?

    Hi, James David!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I absolutely love using Disney's Magical Express transportation service when I visit Walt Disney World Resort.  Disney's Magical Express makes the arrival process go so smoothly that you really can start enjoying your vacation the moment you step off of your plane in Orlando.

    Although your Walt Disney World trip is getting closer every day, you are still a couple of months away from your magical vacation, so Hakuna Matata, no worries!  Approximately two to three weeks prior to your arrival date, you should receive some more information on Disney's Magical Express.  At that time, Disney's Magical Express documents and your luggage tags will be mailed to you.  

    When you arrive in Orlando and are ready to board Disney's Magical Express, you will need these documents (or your MagicBand if it was already mailed to you) in order to board the motorcoach.  If for some reason you do not receive these documents in the mail, simply speak with a Cast Member at Disney's Magical Express.  They should be able to look up your reservation for you.

    If it gets closer to your trip and you have not received anything else from Disney's Magical Express, you may visit the Help Center on the Walt Disney World website to follow up on this.

    Have a magical day!
